    Default Anybody using the MPJ 4500mah battery?

    The battery on my note 3 is nothing short of amazing, but I was thinking of buying a spare. I read good things about these MPJ ones, specially since they seem to pack a bit more juice and are affordable, without impacting the overall feel of the phone.

    Anybody using this one? Does it really deliver roughly 30% more battery time than stock?

    Thanks

    I don't think so ... at 4500mAh it should be a lot better than just comparable to the stock battery! Don't settle for less! There is lot of better batteries out there, like Anker & Caseology that are rated at the standard 3200mAh!

    I actually did a bit of research and I don't think it is a good idea to buy these batteries. At 3.7 watt, they are below the stock 3.8 standard, and would therefore deliver about the same endurance, but without matching stock in power.

    Quality is top notch ... I have seen it all .... still charging & we'll see what I get after that! I have had batteries where you can tell by the feel that the cells are split in 2. Those are the batteries I have seen that never start at 100% & never last more than 2/3 of the OEM battery. These are not those batteries so far

    Update: Taking a long time to charge .... hope it's worth it .... more later

    After charging for 5+ hours I put it in the phone & it started out at 100% for about 5 minutes & after updating 10 apps on WiFi it's at 99%

    I'm on their website and under "Shop By Device", I see nothing there regarding the Galaxy Note 3 under Samsung, where are you finding your battery?

    Sorry, I'm not a power user ..... you'll be waiting a very long time ..... Average 4 days/Charge x 3 batteries = 12 * 4 = 48 days for 4 charges BTW, 4 days is the lowest average Still on my first charge Battery is the same size as the OEM battery It is lasting at least as long as the OEM

    As of now, they are sold out on Amazon.!!

    I had them on order when they were $15.95.. Then I got a note that, they were unavailable..Then they showed up again,and after your good report, they are gone again!!

    EDIT NOTE: When I click on the link to Amazon for the Note 3 batteries, they were unavailable. Five minutes later I click back and again, they were there..
    $16.99 with $2.99 shipping.

    Don't understand how you are getting that long. Aren't these the same capacity of the standard supplied.

    What do you have enables / disabled

    These are the 3200mAh capacity & my Samsung batts do this well too. I don't do messaging, I pull email from one account every 2 hours, screen is set to about 20%, I do record all my calls mostly for telemarketers. Haven't played any games on it yet.

    Ok that makes more sense

    I get approx 4 hours screen time.

    But have about 10 widgets and loads of things running with auto brightness.

    Size of the screen and the customisable use of widgets where the 2 key reasons I moved from iPhone 5 to HTC one and then the note 3.

    I regularly achieve 3/4 + screen time with

    -Auto brightness -1
    -Various apps including multiple twitter and Facebook auto syncing
    -Streaming podcasts in my car for 90 mins a day whilst commuting to and from work.
    -push notifications

    I take my phone off charge at 6 am and usually have 10%+ when putting it back on at 10pm at night.

    What is the OEM battery priced at? I have seen the Anker just a single battery in the $18 range. I am going to give these a try. From GtoJon's take, they are working nicely.

    $15 & comes with 2 batteries & a charger .... $5 each is way too cheap! I have always used after market batteries in my phones & cameras. The after market batteries sometimes out last the OEM batteries. After only a year with my Canon 7D, my OEM battery started falling off fast & 1 of the after market batteries is still going after 3 years! As far as phones batteries, I have never had a GOOD after market battery fall off on charging ability or capacity! Definition of a good battery is one that stats out after boot at 100% & lasts as long as the OEM battery.
